|Perceptual, Evaluative and Behavioural Changes through Externally Mediated Self-confrontation - Bernhard Bierschenk|
This report describes the development and application of the idea of microteaching in research and education. It presents a cybernetic model for a systematic and controlled study of the way in which the individual makes use of different feedback devices for self-control and self-direction. The model is applied in an examination of an extremely comprehensive collection of research literature. The result of the investigation is studied with regard to its significance for a person's ability to make...

|The Idealised World: A Problem of Semantics - Bernhard Bierschenk|
In a number of preceding articles having appeared in this series it has been demonstrated that the AaO paradigm can be used to develop a cognitive helical structure. The present article advances the process to the forth of five phases. Of the four dependent variables emerging at this stage, two will be discussed, namely (1) zero processing and (2) variations in form. The other two will be presented in a forthcoming article...

|Ett ekologiskt perspektiv på språk och textanalys - Inger Bierschenk|
This article presents an ecological theory of language and text. It is assumed that the development of language and the production of text are perspective creating activities. A perspective is formed when the material and the immaterial dimension of a text meet. This process can be discovered through a formal mechanism, of which the core component is the Agent. By means of examples from historical times some facts and circumstances are discussed, which support the idea that an Agent, that is, th...

|Prepositioners verkningssätt i modeller för språkbehandling - Inger Bierschenk|
This seminar paper contains a short principled discussion of the use of prepositions in the interaction of language with information science models. The point of departure is the problems of ambiguity identified in various computer-based approaches to the specification of information. The paper ends up in a proposal for ecological thinking in text analyses where the concept of action range should have the cue function...

|A Model for Explorations into Cognitive Science Research - Bernhard Bierschenk|
Because computer-oriented researchers apply cognitive notions such as meaning, symbol and understanding, or concept, cognition and knowledge, it has become mandatory to inquire into the traditional explanatory models of science, including behaviourism. The article outlines the steering and control mechanism that has governed a new outlook in which subjective mental states become functionally interactive and essential for a full explanation of conscious behaviour...

|Simulating Strategies of Interactive Behaviour - Bernhard Bierschenk|
Effective communication is of crucial importance for the development of effective social organisations. Deficient communication combined with rapid technological and social changes appears to lead to both ecological and psychological imbalance. An increasing number of environmental groups are working for ecological improvements, but young people seem to find it increasingly difficult to master the task of developing an integrated personality...

|Intermediate Language Structure - Inger Bierschenk|
In modern information and documentation systems, the thesaurus has the important function of serving as a link between the author of a document and the information searcher. For this reason, the language structure of thesauri should receive more attention than has been the case so far. In this study, the intermediate function of the thesaurus has led to an investigation of the principles for structuring and representing information in such a way that it corresponds to the cognitive structure...

|Den dolda storheten i Dvärgen - Inger Bierschenk|
This study concerns The Dwarf (Dvärgen) by Pär Lagerkvist. The author wanted to give his tribute to the Renaissance masters by letting the dwarf express his scorn and contempt for humanism. Further, Lagerkvist wanted to characterize the greatness and lowness of Man through the prince and his innate dwarf. It is a general conception that the prince character in this novel has retrieved properties from Machiavelli’s Prince...

|The Schematism of Natural Language - Inger Bierschenk|
Language processing can hardly be discussed without a statement of the fundamentals on which the instrumentation rests. The models and their operationalisation express the linguist's starting-points, more or less conscious, when he faces the phenomenon of language. A commonly accepted position in linguistics is that language is a set of culturally transmitted conventions. The language describing these conventions is called a linguistic model when it forms some systematics...

|Nature’s String Stitching Device for the Production of a Language Space - Bernhard Bierschenk|
No one has ever been able to look into the language space nor has anyone been able to measure the phenomenon of consciousness without the interference of an observer. This article is changing this situation completely. From now on it is possible to produce measures of consciousness without the presence of classical observation devices. In particular, the observation problem can be bypassed since the “observer” is part of the “observed”...

|The Ideology of Pure Form - Inger Bierschenk|
Ever since Chomsky published his work on the syntactic structures, linguists, AI-researchers, philosophers and psychologists have been obsessed with trying to prove the relevance of the formalism that his work advocates. The Chomskyan tradition assumes that the automaton represents the highest form of knowledge, and that, therefore, knowledge of language exists only as propositions. In the later works of Chomsky, the X-bar theory, especially its minimalist version, is proposed to be a purified d...

|A System for a Computer-based Content Analysis of Interview Data - Bernhard Bierschenk & Inger Bierschenk|
Content analysis based on frequency distributions differs from impressionistic analysis and interpretations of written or spoken text. This type of analysis is objective insofar as it requires an explicit analysis procedure and a formalised analysis. Objectification means that a person transfers certain typical human functions to objects, i.e., tools, and that machines are developed that can carry out functions that were originally subjective...

|Worthiness as Behaviour Component - Bernhard Bierschenk, Helge Helmersson, & Bengt Lohmander|
Traditionally, respecting peopleâs choice is considered equal with respecting people. Founded on the premise of choice, elaborated and hierarchically organized organisations have been built up to guarantee growth of living standard for securing quality of life. This article reports on a study, which questions the adequacy of this premise. Three models of feasible societies have been used to study the way in which people prefer one or the other with respect to how uncertain or certain they are t...

|Reconciling Deductive and Inductive Approaches to Work Motivation by a Syndetic - Conrad Ottesen|
Theories of work motivation are reconsidered from F. W. Taylor to E. A. Locke. These are characterised by a behaviour paradigmatic point of view as either of analytic-deductive or analytic-inductive kind. Hence rationality is understood according to a determinism leaving rationality according to a moral point of view out of consideration. In order to incorporate human value into the study of work motivation a syndetic approach is called upon...

|Heterogeneity in the Apprehension of Adaptation and Justice - Bernhard Bierschenk & Inger Bierschenk|
The present report is about the fourth experiment in a series of five. This series concerns a longitudinal study of changing shapes of mind. Based on the assumption that mind is an emergent property of the processes that produce natural language expressions, mental development is discoverable through the Agent-action-Objective (AaO) mechanisms. The present study is focussing on the way in which the evolutionnary process of text production portrays the system of thought that holds that human fitn...
